Listening for an NIS domain server...
take too long. (Most time is lost in the second stage.)

Listening can take on the order of one full minute, which makes

This may be a problem with the initscripts; feel free to reassign.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create /etc/yp.conf with any entry (broadcast or a specific server)
2. Reboot without access to the NIS server (either no server in your
broadcast domain, or without a route to the specified server)
